Abhijit Bhaduri (PMIR '82-'84) was on campus today, 4th August 2005 to launch his much awaited book Mediocre But Arrogant (MBA).
Mediocre But Arrogant (MBA) is about Love and Life in a fictitious B-School called Management Institue of Jamshedpur (MIJ). It is a description of how Abbey a graduate from Delhi spends the two best years of his life. The story, he said, was quite generic which most people could relate to. It was about life in MIJ, an institution built by the sustained and selfless efforts of Father Hathaway and his team, about living in a campus hostel, about characters whom one come's across during his college or school days.

The book was launched by Mr. Bushen Raina, the President of the XLRI Alumni Association. Abhijit addressed the XL family in his characteristic humorous style. The packed auditorium had some wonderful moments when he read certain chapters from his book. He distributed autographed copies to XLRI students. Later he had lunch served by our very own Basanto at the XLRI mess, who would serve him when he was on campus. Being a guitarist himself he had a jam session with our own band on campus "The Bodhi Tree" and interacted with the current students.
